Our first time camping with kids

What a fun-filled week!! With the kids just fresh out of school, we figured it’s time we’d take them camping for the very first time! But before that, we started this fun summer trip off playing tourists at our very own city of Toronto and celebrated not only my daughter, Zoe’s 6th birthday, but as well as Canada’s 150th birthday — thus, ending the night with some beautiful fireworks!! We then decided to head southwest and explore the southern most tip of Canada at Point Pelee National Park and set camp nearby. With an ample of activities for the kids, swimming was definitely their most favorite thing to do throughout this trip! But I on the other hand, tend to lean more towards the beauty of starting that campfire and roasting some good ol’ marshmallows! 😎🚗🔥⛺🌲

A road trip through the Pacific Northwest

Five years ago, we did a southern California road trip and thought that was colossal…little did we know that an even more stunning scenery is located northbound! Starting from San Francisco, right through the rows of the ancient giant redwood trees, tracing highway 101 along the beautiful Oregon coast, all the way up to Seattle, back down to Portland, Sacramento and finally ending back where we started in San Francisco. Here are a few highlights of our Mega Road Trip through some of nature’s finest eye candy.
